The focus of Sydney-based artist Sophie Gralton’s art lies in the quality of interaction between medium and meaning. For her, what matters most is not visual accuracy but the relationship between image and ground and the seduction of visual surfaces. It is a misconception to think of Gralton’s work as primarily a nostalgic reflection on bygone times. On the contrary, she eschews any notion of sentimentality. The inspiration for her work arose when visiting an exhibition of Dutch 17th century portraits of children in Paris in 2007. Gralton is a painter known for her signature imagery of contemporary child portraiture.
